Ocean Hunter Sportfishing

Ocean Hunter Sportfishing runs angling trips out of Ocean City and offers to show you what the local fishery is all about.

Come on aboard with Capt. Aaron, whose main priority is to get you on some fish. Expect to use techniques like bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, popping, and spinning, based on the species you’re targeting. Speaking of which, you have the option of 8 to 12-hour trips, where you’ll be fishing for the likes of Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Tuna, Seabass, Wahoo, and Flounder, depending on the specific season and the day’s weather.

You’ll be fishing from a 36’ Hatteras boat with enough room for up to 6 anglers at any single time. It features an air-conditioned salon equipped with a TV, refrigerator, microwave, twin berth, toilet and shower.

When it comes to rods, reels, and terminal tackle, everything you need is included in the price. As for fishing licenses, everything will be taken care of by the captain so you don’t have to worry about it.

Capt. Aaron runs trips together with his first mate, who’s there to help you with whatever you may need. Tips are always appreciated for a job well done. Want to bring the rest of the family along for the ride? Kids are welcome aboard, so you’re free to make it a family adventure.
